Europeans first arrived in the area in 1785 when Fort Miro was built on the banks of the Ouachita (pronounced WASH uh tah) River. [Oauchita was the name of one of the Caddo Indian tribes.] Ouachita was one of the original 19 parishes under the Spanish government. In 1805 Fort Miro became a town. Today that town is the parish seat Monroe. From Ouachita were formed East Carroll, Richland, Lincoln, and Union Parishes.
